I don't really want to pay 2x as much for a laptop as it's worth and only be able to run MacOS on it. ;)

I use Linux. I have Windows installed on my work laptop also, but I regularly go for months without booting into it (which, incidentally, makes it kind of a chore as there's always 10 reboots worth of updates to install). My Windows installation on my desktop machine at home got screwed up several years ago and I haven't bothered fixing it. While I would in theory rather like to have a Mac for stuff like iTunes and stuff, I don't realistically have a need for a machine that isn't my primary laptop or primary desktop and I can't really ditch Linux for MacOS. While I'd gain some stuff, I'd lose some stuff also. Oh, and I like "FREE!". I don't like the fact that you have to pay $150 every year or two for an update of the OS from Apple.

Heh, cool.

I used to run Red Hat. I now run Fedora (so... well, sort of Red Hat, sort of not).

If I could run MacOS X and Linux side-by-side at the same time on a laptop, that would completely rock. I rather suspect that regardless of the vague claims in that article, you wouldn't be able to do that (at least I think that's what the vague claims of "partitioning" seemed to be hinting at -- it sure didn't sound like they were talking about disk partitions as it was always mentioned hand-in-hand with the CPUs).

"elilo", however, made me shudder. I am so happy that the bad old days of lilo are behind me and I now have the wonderful Grub. elilo sounds like lilo + instability (yay!). I'd hope they could maybe add support to Grub. I get the general impression that Grub is actively developed and kind of has the mission of being the one true boot loader, which would mean they'd want to make it work on the new platform.

It's a small thing, admittedly, a boot loader, but still!
